National Grid Chief Executive Officer touts medical campus partnership.
From electric car recharging points to parking lot lights energized by the sun and wind, the innovative approach to power usage at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus is a plan for future years.
That is as per National Grid CEO Steve Holliday, who talked with roughly 200 business executives and academics in the Agrusa Auditorium in Davis Hall on North Campus.
Unlike the conventional paradigm, when energy providers respond to exactly what businesses and companies develop, National Grid became part of designing the medical campus during its early stages, Holliday stated.
The initial kick off allowed National Grid to apply cutting edge innovations, like the environmentally friendly car park lights, that are helping to make the healthcare campus more sustainable, he stated.
UK energy providers to refund £153m from shut accounts.
‘Big Six’ electricity and gas suppliers had been instructed to give the cash back following claims from the public.
Britain’s biggest energy companies have agreed to return more than £ 153m to 3.5 million local customers after the funds accrued in sealed accounts in the last six years, the industry body announced recently.
The power regulatory authority Ofgem this year instructed the Big Six electric and gas providers to refund the money when the public reported it was “alarming” that they had kept such substantial amounts.
British Gas owner Centrica, ScottishPower, E.On, SSE, npower and EDF had a total amount of more than £ 400m left in roughly 3.5 million domestic and 300,000 corporate accounts once individuals and firms had moved suppliers.
The average domestic balance is roughly £ 50 and the industry has even devoted to hand back the cash from company accounts.
